Architecture Fabrics Market to Register Twofold Growth Over the Forecast Period, Backed by Extensive Application in Industrial Segment

Architecture fabrics, also known as structural fabrics or construction fabrics, are technical textiles employed in a variety of aesthetic free-form building designs such as awnings & canopies, facades, blinds, screens, and others. Tensile fabric structures are the structures that employ thin, flexible surface materials such as coated fabrics as their primary structural and cladding element. These fabrics can be used to create a shading, roof, or decorative component by tensioning them with cables, wires, steel or any other form of support system. architecture fabrics differ vastly from other forms of building materials and offer several advantages over traditional materials in terms of both practical and environmental design. Fire retardancy, durability & sustainability, translucency, stretch & dimensional stability, tensile strength, and aesthetic properties are among the key distinguishing characteristics of architectural fabrics. 

Regional Analysis

Geographically, the global architecture fabrics market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America and the Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Asia Pacific is pegged to be the fastest growing market for architecture fabrics, back by population growth and rapid urbanization. China, India, and Southeast Asian countries have a massive consumer base, cheap labor, and abundant natural resources; thus, they attract foreign direct investments from conglomerates & venture capitalists. According to the IBEF, the construction sector and infrastructure activities brought FDI inflows worth USD 24.67 billion and USD 12.36 billion, respectively from April 2000 to December 2017.

North America is expected to witness significant development during the forecast period, owing to robust infrastructure development and growing focus on renovation activities. Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) invests over USD 8 million every year to develop the fabrics industry and support member companies. Additionally, the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA), representing companies providing awning and awning-related products, raises awareness regarding awnings as an energy saving, image enhancing, and appealing addition to commercial and residential structures among engineers and architects.

The Europe architectural fabric market is projected to grow from USD 2858 million in 2019 to USD 4890 million by 2026 in terms of value in light of the increasing demand for modern and innovative construction materials.

The LAMEA region is witnessing sluggish market growth, owing to increase in slow growth in oil & gas sector, and government infrastructure projects. Brazil is expected to hold the largest share of the LAMEA architectural market during the forecast period, owing to the growing number of manufacturing players in the country and ongoing infrastructural projects and their privatization, including the construction of airports and stadiums. Massive ongoing architectural projects in the Middle East, including the construction of the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre, are pegged to be prominent consumers of architectural fabrics.

Segmentation Analysis

The global architectural fabric market can be segmented by type and application.

Based on type, the market can be segmented into polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE), and others. The polyvinyl chloride (PVC) segment dominates the market as PVC exhibits good flexibility and translucency, an impressive lifespan, and is cost-effective. Polyvinyl chloride coated, or laminated polyester membranes are high strength materials used in a range of applications such as canopies as well as in the construction of temporary buildings on movie sets and trade fairs, among others.

Based on application, the market can be segmented into recreational, industrial, agricultural, environmental, and military & government. Among these, the industrial segment dominates the architectural fabrics market. Several industries such as automotive, aviation, mining, oil & gas, energy, warehousing & manufacturing, and others make use of fabric-constructed buildings for various purposes such as to maximize return on investment (RoI), as permanent fabric structures are ideal solutions to various business needs.
